China News Agency, Beijing, May 17 (Reporter Pang Wuji) In April, the sales price of commercial residential buildings in China's large and medium-sized cities rose steadily and slightly.
According to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics of China on the 17th, in April, among the 70 large and medium-sized cities, 62 cities saw a month-on-month increase in the sales price of newly built commercial housing, while 3 cities remained flat and 5 cities fell.
The number of cities where new house prices rose month-on-month was the same as in March.
That month, the price of new houses in 70 cities increased slightly from the previous month.
According to statistics, in April, the price of new houses in 70 cities rose 0.5% month-on-month, an increase of 0.1 percentage points from the previous month, and a year-on-year increase of 4.4%, a record high since October last year.
The month-on-month increase in the price of new houses in the first, second and third tier cities has expanded.
Sheng Guoqing, chief statistician of the City Department of the National Bureau of Statistics, pointed out that in April, the sales price of newly built commercial housing in 4 first-tier cities rose by 0.6% month-on-month, an increase of 0.2 percentage points from the previous month; 31 second-tier cities rose by 0.6%, an increase from the previous month An increase of 0.1 percentage point; 35 third-tier cities rose 0.4% month-on-month, an increase of 0.1 percentage point from the previous month.
That month, among 70 cities, Chongqing and Guangzhou “led the rise” in new house prices. Chongqing’s new house prices rose 1.4% month-on-month, ranking first among 70 cities; Guangzhou’s new house prices rose 1.1% month-on-month, second only to Chongqing.
Li Yujia, chief researcher of the Guangdong Provincial Housing Policy Research Center, pointed out that Chongqing’s new house prices “led the rise” among hotspot cities for the first time compared with the previous month. This shows that with the gradual upgrade of regulation, the housing market has spread from first-tier cities to second-tier hotspots and general second-tier cities.
The cities with the highest growth rate in April were basically weak second-tier cities.
The first- and second-tier hotspots were controlled, and the non-hot-spot second-tier began to rise.
Xu Xiaole, chief market analyst at the Shell Research Institute, pointed out that in April, 36 cities out of 70 cities saw a month-on-month increase in new house prices or increased from a decline to a rise, and the new house market became more enthusiastic.
He believes that the increase in new house prices is mainly due to the fact that the new house market in key cities is in short supply and market expectations are strong. At the same time, the first batch of centralized land supply transactions in some key cities since April, the high popularity of the land auction market has further strengthened market expectations.
That month, the second-hand housing market cooled. Chen Xiao, an analyst at Zhuge Housing Data Research Center, pointed out that among the 70 cities, the number of cities where the price of second-hand housing has risen has decreased, and the price increase has remained the same as last month. On the whole, in April, under the influence of the tightening regulation in many cities, the market enthusiasm has converged, and at the same time, the enthusiasm of the new house market is higher than that of the second-hand house. It is expected that as the regulatory policies gradually ferment, the increase in housing prices may slow down. (Finish)
